Apple released iOS 14.3 beta 1 to developers yesterday and while it’s still only the initial release it still manages to have plenty on offer. There’s no telling when the iOS 14.3 update will be made available to the public, but for now it’s clear that this is one of Apple’s most important post-iOS 14 updates.

The biggest addition is obviously the arrival of Apple’s ProRAW format for iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

It allows photographers to take great shots with Apple’s computational photography while still getting the added power of editing a RAW file. But there’s more going on in iOS 14.3 than that.

Here’s a list of everything you can look forward to.

  • Apple ProRAW Support for iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • Apple will now suggest third-party apps that can be set as defaults such as email apps and web browsers.
  • The Health app now includes a new section on Pregnancy.
  • Devices now support the PS5’s DualSense controller as well as Amazon’s Luna controller.
  • App Clips can now be launched by scanning App Clip Codes using the camera.
  • The Home app has gained new notifications about when a software update is available.
  • There’s a new Cardio Fitness feature for Apple Watch, likely in preparation for Fitness+.
  • Ecosia can now be set as the default search engine.
  • The Weather app gained air quality recommendations.
  • References to AirTags have again been found in this latest beta.
  • An image appears to show AirPods Studio.

That’s a lot for an initial beta release and we expect plenty more to change between now and launch day.
